Compost: Let Waste Work for You

If you’ve always wanted to compost, and compost right, this presentation is for you!

In this virtual presentation, Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation (RIRRC) will give you all the information you need to start composting in your backyard.

Topics covered include:

  • a review of different ways to compost
  • what goes (and does not go!) in your compost bin
  • getting started with a basic leaf bin
  • getting started with a bin for both leaves and food scraps
  • best practices for managing your bin, and for harvesting, applying, and supplementing your finished compost.
